On CAPS, 97% of the 247 members who have rated Triumph believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, brenoboyle, succinctly summed up the Triumph bull case for our community: "Large backlog for aerospace orders should lead to continuing revenue growth. Only positive earnings surprises for the past 6 quarters, trades at the bottom of its 5 year valuation in trailing P/E."

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Triumph may not be your top choice.
